Completion of 21 days self-training to strengthen his physical body in order to achieve high leveled concentration

Adrian has had a tremendous physical improvement since joining Master Kim’s class. Any feedback that has been given to him during his promotion tests, ge takes very serious. This 21 day squat challenge was no different. I know how hard Adrian can work, when he wants. Although the 21 day challenge was for once a day, I had Adrian do the set twice a day. The agreement was that he would have to focus and not get distracted, if he talked or moved he would need to start the set over. Each day we would work on how to improve from the previous day. From keeping his feet from moving, not rushing through the set, keeping his balance, keeping his back straight, and really strengthening his muscles. There were days that he would wake up and do the set, other days he would do one set in the morning one before bed. We also had one night that I was working late, he went to bed without completing his one set. I woke him up at 1030pm for him to do his set. This small assignment has really helped him focus and get himself more centered. Towards the end it became a family activity, we would all have him teach us how to properly squat. Even after the challenge was over, he still continues with squats daily, there are days he skips but o would say at least 5-6 days a week he does it. As well if we are doing homework and he can’t focus, I have him do squats and it helps him reset and focus. Overall amazing experience for Adrian and our family. We are so proud of him and his accomplishments. I know he still has work to do, focus, work on his posture and he needs to stop being so caught up on getting it right the 1st time.
